Abstract:

In December 1991, the Board of Supervisors of Los Angeles County appointed James C. Kolts to conduct a review of the policies, practices and procedures of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, including recruitment, training, job performance and evaluation, record keeping and management practices, as they relate to allegations of excessive force, the community sensitivity of deputies and the Department's citizen complaint procedure. In 1991, Sheriff Block initiated his Core Values project. Part of the task of this report was to evaluate these internal efforts to determine whether the Department has made adequate progress in addressing excessive force and its causes. Judge Kolts and his staff made a series of recommendations addressing each issue studied by the staff. Seven other principal recommendations were made.
